In 2017, a trial of different Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) providers ran across the University to investigate the possibility of deployment (or recommendation) of a product for use at Campus, School or Departmental level. However, the results of this trial confirmed that in Cambridge, even within a single department, the diversity of research interests, workflows and individual preferences makes it practically impossible to identify a single product that would suit everyone.

As a result of the trial, a guidance page on the different ELN providers and what to think about when picking one has been created along with a discussion forum for users or prospective users to get advice.
